You’ll need red & cyan/green/yellow 3D glasses or a 3D TV/monitor to view this alpine coaster video properly. You can adjust the 3D settings or turn them off by clicking the settings button (gear/cog icon) in the bottom-right corner of the video screen. This video also works with Google Cardboard and the DODOcase VR Kit. We also posted an on-ride POV video in 2D for those that cannot view this video on their phone or tablet. Here’s the link to the 2D video we posted: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tE-gy6kQ0g0
At nearly 4000 feet in length – that’s over a mile of downhill track – it’s the longest alpine coaster in the USA! You can control the ride, that reaches speeds of up to 27 mph if you go all out and don’t use the brakes. This video was filmed at full speed throughout the ride.
The Smoky Mountain Alpine Coaster is located in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Also called mountain coasters, these gravity-operated rides installed on a hill or mountain utilizes a track made of stainless steel tubes. The sleds are designed to not come off of the track during the ride and riders control their speed by applying or releasing brakes connected to levers on each side of the sled.
